Karakuriko is a Lemures sent by Tiger's Eye to fight the Sailor Senshi. She appeared in Episode 1 of Sailor Moon SuperS.

Nomenclature and Etymology

The "Karakuri" part of her name comes from the word "絡繰り" (same pronunciation), which means "mechanical," as in "mechanical [windup] doll."


She has the appearance of a doll.


When Tiger's Eye looked into Unazuki's dreams in search of Pegasus, Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon confronted him, so he sent Lemures Karakuriko after them. Karakuriko soon had them trapped. After finding no sign of Pegasus inside Unazuki's mirror, Tiger's Eye ordered Karakuriko to execute Unazuki, but then Pegasus appeared, transforming Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon into Super Sailors and giving Sailor Moon the Moon Kaleido Scope. She used Moon Gorgeous Meditation to destroy Karakuriko.


She attacks by detaching her limbs and shooting a knife from her mouth.



  • Karakuriko's head spins around at 360-degree angles. This is similar to The Exorcist, as well as a similar feat performed by Murid in episode 11.
  • She was the first Lemures to be introduced in Sailor Moon SuperS
  • In the CWi English dub, when Karakuriko was defeated she cried out, "Lights out!", similar to the "Stage out!" from the original version.
